    ^ I think this is largely going to depend on your district rep and how much of a stickler they are.

    I've had zero success with Pit Stop. Using it on tires with valve extenders may be part of the problem, but Vittoria says it's supposed to work with Valve extenders.

    Age of the components isn't an issue. Mileage/Wear can be.

    105 components of that generation work fine. But stuff does wear out.

    If they haven't been replaced, you will need a new chain, and...

    Nothing wrong with where he attacked. Going right before and into a curve can be a great place to attack, particularly the last turn of a crit.

    And he had plenty of room here. He could have...

    You want a saddle that fits you so that your weight is supported by your sitz bones, not the soft aprts of your anatomy.

    700x40 Schwalbe Marathons. (I believe duremes, IIRC).

    40mm was as wide as would fit my bike, and they were fine, except for a bit of an issue with mud clearance.

    I saw a number of people on...

    Does it seem to anyone else just a little inappropriate to have a gofundme site up less than 6 hours after his death?

    To the extent his widow and children need support, it's a good idea. But...

    I'd wear a base layer, regular jersey, bibs, leg warmers, arm warmers, vest, and full fingered gloves.

    Send an email to the promoter attaching the strava file. Ask him to amend the results to show you finished, even if it's DFL. Remind him that it matters because you have to have 10 Cat 5 finishes.

    Sorry to hear you crashed. Really sucks breaking your hip. Heal fast.

    As for the video, I think you can make an argument that the guy on the outside chopped your line. He had plenty of room on...

    Good way to make the paceline yo yo. Preferable to not brake at all. If you're smooth enough, however, you can brake, while pedaling to make a minor adjustment in positioning without disrupting the...

    As far as holding the saddle on that's fine. The mm marks are just there to help you make adjustments.

    The issue is whether it puts you in the right position over the pedals. You can slide that...

    That's basically it. Most people have a tendency to go too hard when it's supposed to be easy, and too easy when it's supposed to be hard.

    One othe point, a training plan that is going to produce results is going to be hard. You're going to have to do workouts on less than fresh legs, and sometimes you have to suffer through works outs...

    I don't think it's your age. I think it's the amount of base you have.

    40 is not that old. At an extreme example Jens Voigt is 42, and puts in 21 hard days with only 2 off every July.

    Just to update this, this thread relates to the original Gates System.

    We're now running the center track sytem, which we've had fewer problems with, and is discussed in other threads.

    Yo don't know until yout try. For one thing all 58cm frames are not created equal; you can fit in one size on one brand, and another on another.

    That said, I'd agree with others in this thread...

    No one's contesting that. The OP asked what he should have done differently, and the clear answer was not get close enough to this yahoo that he would rear end him if he stopped.
